Shah Rukh to Start His Assignment in “Kaun Banega Crorepati”

The famous Indian television show “Kaun Banega Crorepati” (Who Wants to be a Millionaire) is going to be started again very soon with its new presenter bollywod star Shah Rukh Khan. The show became a mega event over the India with the stylish presenter and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachcan. However, the program was stopped due to the illness of Big B. This time Shah Rukh Khan has been offered the job and he has also accepted the proposal. Now it is million dollar question whether King Khan can continue the success of Amitabh Bachchan. I am quoting some lines regarding this news from a Herald Tribune report:

When I first met Mr. Bachchan I was overwhelmed. I felt I was standing in front of the Lord Almighty," said Prasenjit Sarkar, who was the last contestant on the previous season of the show and will be the first one when the program's new season debuts on Monday.

The first episode was filmed recently, and Sarkar said Khan, 41, is an energetic host who instantly puts participants at ease.

"He comes across like a good friend," Sarkar said in a telephone interview Thursday. "He is a big Bollywood star but he can make friends with a common man."

I am not sure about the success of King Khan but it is true that both Amitabh and Shah Rukh have already been the legend in Bollywood and there will have a hidden competition between the two stars.
